What the crud!!!!!! So angry.

I am like the betta grim reaper, im tired of my fish dying, last night, all was perfectly fine, this morning.....2 are dead! and the 3rd is in bad condition, they were all in my 20 gallon. i just recently vacuumed and did a water change, and they were doing great lastnight, so wtth happened? they didnt have ammonia burns, they didnt have anything! just perfect little beautiful lifeless bodies. After going through a very rough fin rot issue with Bello, and a pop eye issue with Aqua, and weeks after healing, they die!?!?!?



Does AQ salt kill them? or Epsom salt? or anything!?!?!
? because other than Prime, thats all that goes into my water, EVER.

Salt is not necessary at all, unless you have them QT for some illness. Stop using salt. I'm not saying that's what happened but I wouldn't use salt on a daily basis.

+1 about the salt. While great to have on the medicine shelf, long-term exposure to salts(at least AQ for certian, not sure about Epsom, but Epsom really isn't necessary/generally recommended for regular use either as far as I know)can by harmful. The only thing you should be adding regularly is conditioner.

Could you perhaps give us a little background on the tank? How long has it ben setup? Is it cycled or in the process of cycling? Do you know what your levels are? Did any of the fish have ANYTHING strange looking or fuzzy at all on them at all, even the bodies you found? Are you positive you added in your conditioner last night? Is it possible that any sort of chemical(soap/hairspray/household-cleaners)could have gotten into the tank at all...?

So sorry, sometimes when fish have had past illness they are left with a compromised immune system.

Aw, I am sorry about your fish.

Do you think it's something with the water, or some kind of illness that they passed to one another?

Poor little fishies. :(
